Last year’s Thanksgiving plate. Not too shabby.

Can you guys believe that it’s Thanksgiving week? I’m more than a little bit boggled myself. Thanks to a killer deadline that kept me up until 3 am last night, I’m running a day behind in my posting schedule. Couple that with the short week and I’m not sure if I’m coming or going.

  • if you want to master the sourdough i highly recommend reading ‘river cottage bread’ – i had 2 awful failed attempts at it but after reading this all of my bread – especially the sourdough – are super awesome and tasty!

  • I pack way more lunches than I’d like! My favorite apple trick is to cut the apple using a coring slicer – the kind that makes 6-8 slices and cuts out the core at the same time. Remove the core, and fill the space where it was with peanut butter. Then stick all the slices back together. The peanut butter keeps air from getting to the white flesh of the apple, so it doesn’t brown. The peanut butter also sticks the whole thing back together so it holds its shape.

    With that said, I’m going to try the new trick – thank you! I always need new ones.

  • Look at that stuffed plate! Nice work. Thanks so much for the mention, Marisa. This NaBloPoMo thing is a little nuts, but I’m having fun with it. Happy Thanksgiving, lady!

  • As a Grade 1 teacher, I gotta say, I’m not keen on the apple idea. Sending elastic bands in a kid’s lunch is just asking for trouble from my perspective.
